Support Spud and Oxfam
Posted by Ben McLean on Thursday, 5 Feb 2009 at 3:32pm
Super Sprayer Scott 'Spud' Walker has made a life altering decision, and no it's not the obvious, a hair transplant treatment.  Scotty has decided, along with 3 friends, to sign up for the Oxfam Trailwalker, a 100km endurance walk that begins at Jells Park in Wheelers Hill and progresses through three different National Parks before finishing at Wesburn Park in the Yarra Valley.
 
The walk starts on 27th March and must complete the 100km hike within 48 hours, which means they will be walking through the night.
 
The aim is to raise $1000 for Oxfam Australia, who work to fight poverty and injustice in 26 countries around the world, including Indigenous Australia. To show your support and help them achieve this goal, donations can be made at the team webpage.  Any donation, regardless of size, would be greatly appreciated by the team and the crew at Oxfam. All donations are tax deductible.
 
 
Whilst we are promoting club members efforts to raise money for charities, i'll take this opportunity to promote my own effort.  I'm participating in the far less gruelling 40km cycle event run by the MS Society.  If you would like to sponsor me or join me on the ride then visit this website http://register.melbournesummercycle.org.au/?BenMcLean 
 
The ride is on Sunday 22nd Feb and starts between 7.30am and 8.30am.  The ride will be a gentle 40km around greater Melbourne city, including a trip over the Westgate Bridge.
